Whether this is your first time getting family photos or an annual  adventure, I'm so glad you're here.  My wish is to give you photos you and your family will cherish for a lifetime. Not like the ones you grab on your phone, because these will actually have YOU in them.  


The raw moments are more important... 

It's the soft touch of a child's hand, the giggles and kisses, funny expressions and so much more. The best photos are the candid ones when your little one is just able to be themselves. Because someday soon, you will miss these crazy exhausting days.

what the families are sayin'

"You had a way of making us feel like we'd known you forever. I know that we've only met once, but we decided you will be the one to capture all of our moments!"

"We feel like we'd known you forever."

~Madeline & Brendan

"I seriously can't handle these! Seeing our first photos as a family of four and being reminded yet again how truly lucky we are to have this little lady in our arms. You are incredible. Thank you!"

"The best photoshoot we've ever had!"

—Courtney & Justin

Memories with your favorite people worth documenting.

Laughter, silliness and sometimes a few tears (and that's okay too!)

Photos of candid moments you didn't even know your heart needed

If you're wanting to walk out of your family portrait session with....

...then I'm the photographer for you.

Hi, I'm Julie —
your photographer,
storyteller, third wheel,
hype girl and new

I believe the genuine emotion of moments are more beautiful than
the cheesy posed ones. Capturing the true and authentic you is
what's most important to me. And I want you to have so much fun,
you can't wait to see your gallery!  

I cannot wait to meet you and help tell your story.

Family is not an important thing, it's everything.

Each day is precious...even when we don't realize it in the moment.  So no matter how chaotic these days seem, let me document them for you to remember forever. And along with the photos, we'll make sure everyone has so much fun, they look back on it as a fun experience they'll even want to do again!

How It Works

step one

step three

Yay! Contact me and we'll lock in your date. I'll send you a confirmation with payment details and a link to pay your retainer. The remaining balance is due a week before your session.

Sounds awesome! How do I book?

I'll be in touch a day or two before the session, and if the forecast looks like rain, we may either reschedule (if you want to be outside) or move the photos to my studio.

what happens if it rains?

Turn around time is 3-4 weeks. I typically send you a sneak peek within a couple days. 

When will we get the photos?

Sessions typically last 45 minutes to an hour. Many times this depends on the size of the group and the age of the kids.
